Updates: Membership, YDL & Northerns Dates, Newton’s Fraction Volunteer Requests & Social Media

We’re getting in touch with a few bits of information for you – some membership information, some dates for the diary, a request for volunteers for Newton’s Fraction and some new social media feeds for you to follow.

New Membership Season

The new membership season starts at the start of April, so watch out for the renewal forms, and new prices. We’ve revamped the membership forms so hopefully they’re easier to follow. We’ve also added some new consents to ensure that the club meets its obligations around the new data protection legislation, and we’re ensuring we’ve got emergency contact information for all of our members.

If members are interested in other club kit – for example sweatshirts, or jackets – then please let Jo know as we can only put in an order if we meet a minimum order quantity of 11 items of the same type (size irrelevant). You can see examples of other kit by visiting http://granthamathleticclub.zeonshop.co.uk/ but don’t try and place orders before you speak to Jo!

Volunteers Needed for Newton’s Fraction/ Little Apple Fun Run

Thank you to everyone that has already volunteered to assist with Newton’s Fraction/ Little Apple on 4th March, but we could still use a few more people to ensure that this prestigious event for the club is the best it can possibly be. If you’re able to give a few hours to help out, please contact Vice-Chair Philip Garner 0780 3713757 or p.garner4@ntlworld.com.
